Benefits for AFGE Members

When you join the union, you have access to these AFGE benefits. These benefits are backed by the collective strength of over 10-million members of AFL-CIO unions. By using one or two of the programs, many members save as much as their annual dues.

These Money-Saving Benefits are Available Only to AFGE Members:

Union Plus Motor Club

How to Access This Benefit

This benefit is only available to members of AFGE. If you are a member of AFGE, please login to the Members Only section. If you are not a member, but would like to find out how to become one, please visit the Join AFGE section.

Administered by Drive America, AFGE members save with the Union Plus Motor Club membership.
The program provides emergency roadside assistance plans featuring nationwide 24-7 service with an extensive network of independent, reputable auto service and emergency towing service providers.

The Union Plus Motor Club Difference:

  • One price covers you and your entire family. $69.00 a year or $6.90 a month.
  • Union Plus Motor Club is less expensive than AAA - so AFGE members enjoy low yearly membership fees
  • Members receive a set of vouchers good for $40 in gas rebates when signing up for one year of service.
  • Offers features that other emergency roadside assistance programs do not - including covering a driver no matter what vehicle they are driving.
  • Access to ASE certified mechanics for second opinions on vehicle service and repairs.
  • Union Plus Motor Club offers a maximum of four roadside service calls.
